The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) today announced the addition of 11 new member galleries: Berry Campbell (New York), Cavin-Morris Gallery (New York), Hales Gallery (New York), Nina Johnson (Miami), Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery (New York), Magenta Plains (New York), Charles Moffett (New York), Sargent’s Daughters (New York and Los Angeles), William Shearburn Gallery (St. Louis), Louis Stern Fine Arts (West Hollywood), and Timothy Taylor (New York).

These 11 galleries join the ADAA’s contingent of over 200 members, each of which is admitted after an evaluation of their exhibition and programming history, established expertise, and intellectual rigor, ensuring that each member is emblematic of the very best that the American art market offers. The Association will support these exemplary institutions by providing information essential to navigating the current art market, as well as technical, legal, and business resources. 

We’re thrilled to count these leading galleries from across the country among the ADAA’s members. This 2024 cohort exemplifies the dynamic variety of programs and voices that the ADAA seeks to champion, bringing insightful exhibitions to cities across the country, furthering the scholarly appreciation of intergenerational and historic figures, and showcasing artists beyond the mainstream.

Executive Director, Maureen Bray.

After receiving a nomination from an existing ADAA member, each candidate undergoes an extensive application process, which includes a thorough vetting procedure, to ensure that each new member shares the ADAA’s commitment to industry best practices and advancement. In order to be admitted, candidates must be in business in the United States for at least five years, demonstrate a record of accomplishment, and have made significant contributions to the art community through activities such as organizing exhibitions, generating scholarly publications, and actively engaging with museums and other art institutions. Following a vote by the full membership, candidates are admitted after receiving the ADAA Board’s final approval.

The caliber of exhibitions presented by our new member class demonstrate a wide-ranging, forward-thinking branch of the art market, both in showing impressive contemporary art by emerging artists, and prompting a reevaluation of historical works and old masters. We are not only excited that our membership is growing but that it continues to include some of the nation’s most important voices in the market today

Anthony Meier, ADAA Board President.

New ADAA Members for 2024

Berry Campbell (New York)
Berry Campbell represents thirty-five artists and estates, from key abstract expressionist and color field figures to cutting-edge contemporary artists who carry the legacies of abstraction into new territory. Partners Christine Berry and Martha Campbell drew on their deep expertise in postwar American art to build their distinctive program around artists who had been “left out” of traditional art histories, for reasons including gender, race, and changing styles that defied prevailing trends. With each exhibition, Berry Campbell generates essential new research and scholarship, contributing to a wider effort to reveal a depth within American modernism that is just beginning to be understood.

Cavin-Morris Gallery (New York)
Cavin-Morris Gallery specializes in the work of contemporary artists who intentionally do not make art for the mainstream art historical canon. In addition to representing contemporary artists for almost 40 years, the gallery concentrates on both functional and non-functional contemporary ceramics with a special interest in the way certain ceramists push the envelope in their expression of traditional forms and cultures. The gallery shows work by international ceramic artists, in addition to an eclectic selection of tribal masks from all the major regions of the world. 

Hales Gallery (New York)

In October 2018, they opened a primary New York location in Chelsea.

Nina Johnson is located in a four-building compound in Miami’s vibrant Little Haiti neighborhood and features a traditional exhibition space as well as a two-story residence in the backyard.

William Shearburn Gallery (St. Louis)
William Shearburn Gallery was founded in St. Louis with the intent of creating an exhibition space that would foster and support a growing local and regional visual arts ecosystem.

Additionally, the gallery has been committed to exhibiting a group of established artists, supplemented by surveys and group shows that investigate current themes in contemporary art within historical contexts.
